The Pomeranian and Siberian Husky dog breeds share some personality traits that will often show up in the Pomsky offspring. Let us take a closer look at these traits.
As all other Huskies do, Pomskies can be quite vocal and do so with either barking or howling. Besides displaying some form of a barking tendency, they often howl if they are bored or they are simply trying to communicate with other Pomskies or Huskies within the vicinity. You will also find that your canine buddy howls at sirens, music, or during night time.
Coming from a Siberian Husky’s working dog background coupled with a Pomeranian’s slightly high intelligence level, a Pomsky is a brilliant and smart dog making it easy to train.
However, there are times when Pomskies may inherit the obstinacy of Pomeranian parents, and they will need to be dealt with calm, assertive leadership and patience as well. It is always good to start socialization training with your Pomsky puppy in the early stages to curb the stubbornness trait.
It is in Pomskies’ nature to be faithful and protect its loved owners from harm. To do that, they tend to bark at things or strangers to alert owners. This makes them good watchdogs.
However, it is this same tendency that leads to another problem – incessant barking. This comes whenever the Pomsky is feeling anxious or insecure, if left alone for long hours or frightened by thunderstorms, seeking the attention of owners, barking for food or when feeling unwell.
On the other hand, If your pup rarely barks but suddenly becomes more vocal, it’s good to check up on your pooch to find out the problem. Your pooch can probably be warning you about something.
Pomsky is a dog breed of high energy levels. As such, without sufficient mental stimulation, your furry friend may exhibit small dogs syndrome, thereby becoming more aggressive and destructive.
This behavior includes jumping on people, other dogs, snapping at threats, the fear of larger dogs, growling, biting, or displaying the reluctance to obey simple commands like moving off couches or beds.
However, you can curb this syndrome with proper training, socialization, and regular exercises to allow your Pomsky to burn off excess or pent-up energy that makes it destructive.
